A weekend at the top of the standings for the TK team, especially in the KZN Under and KZN Over classes.
In Mini Gr.3 U.10 a comeback weekend for Domenico Coco, after qualifying in 22nd position and retiring in the second heat, he is in 25th position for the start of race 1. After a series of overtaking he manages to conclude a weekend in 6th position, showing that he can fight for the top positions.
Good weekend also for Cristian Lanni, who qualified in the repechage, he recovered various positions in both races on Sunday finishing in 22nd position
Edoardo Mario Sulpizio in Mini Gr.3 author of a weekend not at the top, qualifying ended in 26th position managing to recover only two positions in the first race (24th) and a retirement in the second race.
In KZN Under as in 2021, as in 2022, the TK Racing Team closes the championship at the top of the standings, with the Italian Champion for the third consecutive time Antonio Piccioni. In the lead since the first round in Cremona thanks to the victory and a fourth place, while in the second round of “La Conca” he obtained two second places, and in the last round, in the last final, he conquered the title of Champion of Italy thanks to the second position.
A weekend where the whole TK – TESTAGALLA package confirms itself again at the top, conquering pole position, victory in both heats, only due to an early start in the second heat is it relegated to 7th position, starting from the 3rd box in race 1. At the start of the first final Piccioni has a contact and will lead the race in 4th position, while in the second race he starts from the 5th box (due to the inversion of the grid) and ends in 2nd position reconfirming the title of KZN Under Italian Champion.
In KZN Over a weekend at the top of the standings for TK Passion with the 4 standard bearers: Emanuele Villani, Fabio Vacca, Tommaso Polidoro and Tommaso Ciampoli. The 4 very fast drivers achieved important results in all sessions.
Emanuele Villani opens the return to the yellow-black colors in an exceptional way, demonstrating high speed since qualifying, finishing in 6th position, in the heats after quickly starting a few laps in 2nd and 3rd position to then finish the first heat in 4th . In the second heat he finishes 5th. One more click forward for Emanuele Villani is noticeable in Sunday’s races, in race 1 he gets 5th position, while in the second race he leads a few laps in the lead finishing 4th but a penalty is imposed on him, demoting him to 6th position, but for him it is however, it was an excellent test where he competed with the first ones obtaining excellent results.
Another great test was carried out by Fabio Vacca, he showed good speed right from the free practice, he qualified in 8th position and concluded the heats in 8th and 9th position. He was forced to retire in the first race due to a contact, while with overtaking he recovered nine positions finishing 4th just a step away from the podium.
Good weekend for Tommaso Polidoro, 7th in qualifying, gets a 7th and an 8th position in the heats. In the first race he finished 6th, thus starting in 3rd position due to the inverted grid, but a contact in the first corners put an end to the weekend.
For Tommaso Ciampoli a weekend in the top ten, after qualifying in 14th position he gets two 10th places in the heats, and two 10th places in Sunday’s races in the general classification, while two second places in the KZN Over 50 classification.
